One dress, over 15 ways to wrap!
It’s never easy to find the perfect bridesmaid dresses, and Ariane from twobirds Bridesmaid felt exactly the same way. Seeking out a better alternative to spending money on bridesmaid dresses that stayed in the closet, in planning her own wedding founder Ariane wanted to create a versatile solution for her best friends. Her Australian partner Vanessa echoes the sentiment, and knew that the Australian market was going to love the concept, and hence, teamed up with the New Yorker to bring us twobirds. Ariane says she “worked with a pattern maker, got some fabric, and was inspired by the Norma Kamali infinity dress. The positive response I got from my wedding inspired me to quit my job in Corporate America and start twobirds Bridesmaid.”
Lady Gaga and Alyssa Milano loved twobirds so much, they styled their own bridesmaids in these gowns! The classic silk jersey blend fabric is quite versatile. It’s so comfortable, flattering and easy to wear so lends itself to being wrapped, twisted, knotted and draped. The nature of the fabric means it hardly creases, which can be very handy on those hot days where it’s hard to keep anything crease-free!
Setting itself apart from the typical bridesmaid dress, twobirds Bridesmaid offers a collection of convertible and luxurious gowns that are flattering for every figure – designed to maximise assets and minimise imperfections – the dresses are destined to be worn time and time again. When I asked the girls about the most popular style, unanimously the Grecian one shoulder twist is always popular and has a great response from guests!
When asked about what’s next, Ariane & Vanessa tell me they are looking forward to continuing to think outside the box about how they can innovate and grow while offering a design that can be worn again and again after the wedding…”thus killing two birds with one dress!” Check out the collection on their website http://www.twobirdsbridesmaid.com.au/
